Attack of the Crazy Old Lady ...
I have had a cold/sore throat for the past 3 or 4 days. I have not wanted to leave the house and have found solace in watching Nip/Tuck for hours upon hours every day. I am finally almost done with season 3.
Last night, I thought going to the grocery and getting out of the house would make me feel better. I almost always prefer Super Target over Kroger, but Kroger is closer and we just wanted to get in and out. Please note that I hate shopping in Kroger. The aisles are too small, the parking lot is always crowded, and there are almost always crazy people there on a Sunday afternoon.
After packing our cart we rolled in a short line, only to get behind the crazy older lady who was arguing with the cashier over a 30 cent dunkin-hines cake mix coupon ... "what do you mean i can't use this coupon, I'VE ONLY seen ONE kind of cake mix EVER by Dunkin-Hines...get your manager!" She then proceeds to get the manager, the manager has to go look at ALL the different kinds of cake mixes, comes back, talks some more, and finally just gives the crazy woman 30 cents off to satisfy her, 10 minutes later. Please note that all the people in the aisles beside us have already checked out and are well on their way out of crazy land. This is after the fact that last week, we got behind a crazy old couple who were arguing with the cashier about whether something was parsley or italian spinach.
To top it off, we go out to my car only to find that we are blocked by some crazy old lady who is trying to get in our parking spot, yet she hasn't left us enough room to get out. I had to physically get out of my car and yell to her that if she didn't move there was no way that I could get out of my parking spot. Do you know what she did? Just sat there while cars backed up behind her and were honking and going crazy. I had to get out again and motion for her to BACK UP or else. She still sat there adamantly with her blinker on. Finally, after I had enough of the crazy people at Kroger, I yelled in my psycho "I don't feel good so get the hell out of my way voice" ... "MOVE IT OR ELSE LADY!" She backed up maybe three feet. I had to risk almost hitting about six cars to back out of my parking spot, all because some crazy lady who probably shouldn't be driving was blocking my parking spot, only to pull right in after I had finally gotten out. What's with old people today? Are they all crazy? I am starting to think so. Needless to say, I will never be going to Kroger again on a Sunday afternoon.
